Via a press release from the Hice campaign:
Washington, D.C. — Concerned Women Political Action Committee (CWPAC) has announced its endorsement of Jody Hice for Congress in Georgia’s 10th District.
Concerned Women PAC, established in 2002 by Founder and Chairman Beverly LaHaye, is affiliated with Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee, the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization, with more than 500,000 grassroots members nationwide.
Jody Hice spent twelve years as senior pastor of Bethlehem First Baptist Church in Barrow County. During that time Jody developed two key skills needed by any politician to be effective: listening to the concerns of others and serving them according to their needs. In 2003 Jody founded Ten Commandments – Georgia, Inc. to raise money for legal defense to maintain a display of the Ten Commandments in the county courthouse. Jody then established Let Freedom Ring Ministries, Inc.(now The Culture and Values Network) to continue his defense of liberties. In 2008 Jody challenged an IRS code which would remove tax exempt status from churches if political issues were addressed from the pulpit. He has been married to his wife Dee Dee for nearly 30 years and has two daughters.
“Jody Hice is a passionate defender of American liberty” says Penny Nance, CEO of Concerned Women PAC.
“We have endorsed Jody Hice for Congress because he won’t just be a good conservative vote – but he will be a dependable conservative leader.”
Concerned Women Political Action Committee endorses Jody Hice because he plans to reform our current healthcare system with patient-centered free market solutions. He upholds the belief that life is the most central human right—beginning at conception and ending at natural death and he will work hard to defend it. Jody Hice will protect individual religious liberty and preserve the basic principles within the Constitution.
